I always joked that if the FAA needs proof that I built the airplane just send a DNA technician. There's plenty in there.

I am sooooooo glad I picked up the gun when my Bro and I started our RV7

He is the Buckmeister par excellence, but oh my does he suffer. Not in silence, but he still suffers.

His next job is bucking the inside of the 10 tailcone.....
